I haven't included step by step instructions as those given by My Make Do and Mend Year are really clear and simple to follow :)
So instead, I thought I'd share how I decorated them....
Armed with my festive cookie cutters, I cut out a range of shapes and used an old biro to make a hole in each one.
I'm going to use some as gift tags for Christmas presents, so thought it looked nice with some orange slices I had dried and tied with garden twine. Thanks to Buckets of Burlap for their post on dried oranges :)
To some I also added a holly leaf from the garden for an extra festive touch!
For others to hang on the tree, I got out the acrylic paints and went colourful!
Here are the ones I decorated with sequins and buttons....
I'm really pleased with the way they turned out and that I actually managed to get them done before Christmas!!
Love them! Thankyou for linking back to My Make Do and Mend Year! I think I like the button one best-what a great idea!ReplyDelete
Thank you! Yes I like the button one too, think I'm going to look through my other buttons & do some more :)ReplyDelete
